I know, I may be late to reflect on the tragic passing of Kobe, his daughter Gigi, and the other passengers in this tragedy. I didn’t know what to feel, other than sadness for the families of the victims.
I can’t sit here and say I was a huge Kobe fan, but as a fan of the game, he is legendary. I will miss the competitive edge. I may not agree with his motivation tactics, but there is no denying that he was a winner, both as player and as father, husband, friend.
Thank you Kobe for the great memories, restoring the Celtics-Lakers rivalry, and most of all, being an example of pursing greatness. You affected many people and you will be missed.
